The McKesson Telehealth Advisor is Sparrow Home Care’s in-home health monitoring system. With Telehealth, you’ll have the comfort of knowing that someone is always paying close attention to your health. Telehealth is provided at no charge to you or your insurance company while you are receiving skilled home care services.
Our Telehealth system will measure your blood pressure, pulse, and weight on a daily basis and can be set up to measure your oxygen saturation level. The system will ask you questions daily and provide education to assist you in learning more about your disease process.
An average Telehealth session lasts less than eight minutes. You will answer questions using four large buttons, and the information is transmitted to a secure Web site where Sparrow Home Care accesses it and determines if there are any potential problems.
The Telehealth Advisor will be your partner as you become more active in your own care. Some of the system’s most commonly used disease management programs include:
- Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease
- Coronary Artery Disease
- Heart failure
